Library drop-in session: tips for exam revision

On Thursday 11th May 2017 our Library Peer Mentor is hosting a drop-in session to talk about revising for your exams. Come and visit us in Curzon Atrium, 11am-12pm.

We will be asking students for their own top tip when they are revising and we are going to be compiling them in a poster which will be displayed in the library as well as on the Library’s blog. The aim of this is to promote better revision/study practices among students in a collaborative way. As always, we will also be promoting many of the library’s services that aid revision and assignment writing such as LibAnswers, LibGuides and Inter-Library Loans.
